    I don't trust anyone at all. What's the use of trusting anyone anyway? Nobody's perfect.

    I trust according to the capacity of the person. As what, how much I trust, etc.
    I might trust a co worker to do something in his capacity, or a friend to show up on time, maybe even not telling people who I fancy; but that doesn't mean that I'll start confessing my darkest secrets and fantasies to them.

    Very distrusting... People have to earn it... And it's not easy. I'm an extremely distrusting person... Very few have earned my trust and held onto it.

This gut thing is helpful to a certain degree but in no way I am prepared to make generalizations. For example a friend of mine had some bad relationships, ugly ones at that, nasty women, he's like a magnet for bitches. Now his gut tells him that all women are bad because it affected his psyche in that dirrection. Intuition is indeed a marvelous function when it proves to be correct, i find it extracool to be right before any reason can be applied but it's a double edged sword really for one can never be sure, personal experience may bias..maybe in a good direction, maybe in a bad one. I trust my instincts and I am proud of them, act on them on many ocasions that cannot be damaging to a person... but when it comes to interaction with other people I wait for further evidence because I may harm that person unknowingly. What if the justice system was based arround "guilty until proven innocent". Alsi I am sorry to hear about your bad experiances, it's good to learn from your mistakes but that doesn't mean they will happen again, sure it's probbable, but then again almost everithing is.
    Your friends distrust of women is learned...that's not gut instinct. I agree that our justice system should be based on "innocent until proven guilty"...but I'm not the government. I don't need to be friends with everyone...if my gut tells me something bad about a person, I won't go running the streets telling anyone who will listen that they're bad. I just don't want them in my life anymore than I can control.

    The experiences that I've referred to will never happen again, because I will never walk in to the lion's den knowing there is a lion. It's true that I can't control random acts of violence, but I've learned how to make myself less of a target for predators. This is still no guarantee, but it's a huge step in the right direction.

    I said that I trust everyone until I am betrayed.

    I can usually spot someone I absolutely cannot trust with relative ease from the outset, but overall I am inclined to give people the benefit of the doubt and see the good in them - so generally I'm really quite trusting, so much so I have been accused of naivety in the past.

    I went with "trust is earned", but to expound...

    I don't trust nor distrust anyone I don't know (unless I get a very bad vibe). I try to take what people say at face value without putting much stock into it either way until I know the person well enough to make an assesment about their charater and whether or not they are trustworthy people.

    Trust.. I went with "trust is a privelege". I trust certain people with certain things but I dont trust anyone with everything. People have different qualities and liaisons. With that said trust is necessary to achieve greater things and I want to give everyone a fair chance

    If I answer to your comments, It doesn't mean I judge you, I'm just interested in your idea and present counterpoints. I'm saying this because my commenting combined with my curiosity usually gives people the wrong perception that I judge them. (a gut feeling if you will). How you live your life is your problem. But I am ever so curious about different ideas and their motivations. That being said let's move on.

    You're talking about safety...i quite frankly don't believe this concept can work full proof. Of course everyone has an amount of safety, i watch to see if there are cars when i cross the street etc...but how does that apply to trust between people?

    Remember there is safe...and there is
